Isn't that the assumption underlying much of what's happening here at @educause ? Only with more a lot money involved? #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Students are not the only ones who think buying the right software results in improved learning #E11_SESS091#edu11 http://t.co/Ic7nb5KL

*Students* have a fantasy that all they need is the right device in order to learn? #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Gee, I wonder where they got that idea... #E11_SESS091 #edu11

(I think I should probably stop Tweeting for a little while...) #E11_SESS091 #edu11

@GeorgeOnline Silence is golden sometimes! Time to just watch the stream! ;-) #E11_SESS091 #edu11

RT @GeorgeOnline: So students think that buying software is all they have to do to succeed? #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Why does buying software=learning? Buying a hammer doesn't = a house. #e11_sess091 #edu11

"Understanding Student Perspectives on Teaching and Learning" #E11_SESS091 #edu11 See info at tinyurl.com/upenn2011

75% of session attendees say they at least sometimes multitask with devices in meetings. #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Roughly the same percentage of students report doing so in the classroom. #E11_SESS091 #EDU11

More than half of students report being distracted by others using social media. #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Video clip of stuent describing negative effects on his learning of trying to take notes on his laptop. #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Maybe he just needed better note-taking skills coupled with a better note-taking app. (?) #E11_SESS091 #edu11

(I'm not sure what generalizable lessons I can take away from this session, unfortunately... ) #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Every time faculty/staff chuckle at the foolish things students do/assume, I cringe. #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Imagine what students have to say about the foolish things faculty do/assume. #E11_SESS091 #edu11

Interested in open, collaborative environments, then you might be interested in "Openness" as well...
From critical IT services to educational content, distributed models based on openness are challenging higher education's traditional approaches. The Openness Constituent Group (http://www.educause.edu/groups/openness) focuses on the emergence and adoption of open technologies, practices, policies, and initiatives, and how they affect the delivery and support of education. Topics include but are not limited to free and open source software, open content, open educational resources, open courseware, open standards, and management practices such as open business and enterprise 2.0
